Can't transfer files in Pidgin Messenger or Emesene but...

Postby bastones on Wed Jun 17, 2009 11:26 am

...can in aMSN?

I want to transfer a .png to a friend, and when my friend accepted the file it wasn't transferring at all, in Pidgin it continually stated "Waiting for contact to accept" even though he accepted the transfer. I tried in Emesene and same scenario, it just stayed at Status: 0% Avg. Speed: 0kb/s Time Elapsed: 00:00. So I tried another MSN client called aMSN and it worked fine? Could this be a problem on the Windows Live Network?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It sounds like a problem with the Pidgin/eMeSeNe clients rather than the Windows Live Network since the transfer worked in aMSN.

Seems this problem only occurs for those using Windows Live Messenger. My laptop has Ubuntu itself, so I tested a transfer from my Linux Mint desktop to my laptop, and it transferred fine. Anyway, I've just retested in Pidgin Messenger and file transfer works now, for some reason. Still doesn't in Emesene though.
